welcome to "cbs this morning." donald trump promises a different type of presidential campaign after firing his long time campaign manager. corey lewandowski was forced out yesterday just four weeks before the republican convention. trump made the move as a new national poll shows hillary clinton leading him by six points. >> and those new numbers are part of a trend. a series of recent polls show clinton on top, and that has the trump campaign in turmoil. chip reid is here with the republicans' decision to replace the man who handled his white house bid from the very start. chip, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. lewandows corey lewandowski may have led donald trump to a record breaking primary victory, but on monday the calls for his ouster appeared to finally sink in, and trump had his rm toer top aide escorted out of trump tower. trump said it's the beginning of a
7:04 am
>> he's a good man. we've had great success. >> reporter: last night donald trump praised controversial former campaign manager corey lewandowski, a decision to fire him, trump said, was a strategic shift. >> i'm really proud of him. he did a great job, but we're we're going to go a bit of a different route. >> it's a different style. >> it is a different style. >> reporter: during his year long campaign trump was repeatedly force d to defend hi former aide. >> good job, corey. >> reporter: even boasting about his loyalty when lewandowski was accused of grabbing and bruisinging a female reporter. >> it would be very easy for me to discard people. i don't discard people. i stay with people. >> reporter: lewandowski clashed with campaign colleagues, even trump's own children. and ultimately his daughter ivanka was a major influence in her father's decision. >> the campaign is moving in the right direction. that's the most important thing. >> reporter: monday lewandowski said he had no regrets. >> if donald trump wins, that's good for corey lewandowski
7:05 am
and so when you think about it, why would i want to do anything other than what's in the very best interests of him and his campaign. >> reporter: reince priebus said paul manafort moved them to a different campaign. >> there's no way of competing understandings of what the right approach is going to be. >> reporter: trump is trailing in national polls, but a new quinnipiac poll of critical battleground states shows trump and clinton are neck and neck in pennsylvania and ohio. in florida clinton is leading by eight points. still, trump contends the election is just getting under way. >> it's early to have polling. we haven't even gotten started yet. i'm just literally just starting. >> reporter: one area where lewandowski was seen as lacking was in general election fund-raising, according to new numbers filed with the federal e election commission monday trump's campaign and supporting committee had over $21 million an
7:06 am
compared with more than $100 million for team clinton. gayle? >> a big difference in the numbers. >> yes, it is. >> thank you very much. a british man is in custody after saying he had plans to assassinate donald trump. he was arrested saturday at a trump rally. police say he tried to grab an officer's gun so that he could shoot the presumptive republican nominee. investigators say that he apparently plotted this attack for about a year now. jeff pegues is following the investigation. >> reporter: investigators say the suspect had been training at a las vegas gun range in the hours before he was arrested. authorities say he fired 20 rounds at a target from a 9 millimeter glock pistol before putting his blot plot into motion a day later. >> i love las vegas! >> reporter: the gop presumptive nominee did not know what was really happening in the crowd at this campaign stop in las vegas. according to investigators, what appeared to be a disturbance was
7:07 am
steven sanford's disruptive plot to kill donald trump inside treasure island casino's theater. he was quickly rushed away. >> thank you. thank you, officers. >> reporter: according to court documents, sanford got up from his seat and approached saying he was seeking an autograph from tru trump. he then tried to take the officer's weapon by grabbing the holster and handle with both hands. sanford admit ted to trying to shoot and kill trump, acknowledging he would only be able to fire one to two rounds before being killed by police. this isn't the first threat to trump on the campaign trail. in march a demonstrator was arrested during a rally in dayton, ohio, after he tried to rush the candidate on stage. in recent months, the candidate's west coast campaign stops have on occasion included violent encounters between pr protesters, trump supporters and

7:09 am
corey lewandowski problem. if you look at the two elements that are most important in presidential politics, there's the science of the campaign, the operations, the field game, the staff, the coordinating surrogates, the fund-raising, and then there's the art. there's the science and the art, the general performance. in both areas, the science, the operations, have been a disaster. he has few employees. he hasn't been raising money. he has no operations in the field. on the art, the performance, if you look at how he's used the last six weeks it's been gaffe after gaffe after self-inflicted wound to self-inflicted wound. the science and the art are failing him. just a tweak by changing his campaign may not if i can the problem. these are donald trump problems. >> that's my question, whether he can do that. >> do you think he knows he's in trouble? you hear words like chaos, disarray, hot mess, but does he understand how deep this problem is? >> i don't know. but my accepts is he has
7:10 am
of people telling him he had as a real problem. if you look at the way he's performed in the only over the last year in politics but over his entire career, whether it's in book publishing, real estate, tv, every stage of his career he's operated at one speed, high ly rhetoric, someone not showing discipline, working as part of a massive organization and has been willing to restrain his rhetoric in order to calm supporters down. >> what difference do you expect paul manafort to make? >> none. we're three weeks away from the convention. he has three big pivot points, the convention, choosing a vp, and the debates. we're heading into the convention. there's already a revolt brewing among delegates to dislodge him at the convention. >> 400 delegates said they will try and dump trump. >> right. and there's 1,500 and they think they could get up to half of that quickly. >> hillary clinton is going to give a big speech on the economy and trnd
7:11 am
thought that donald trump is an excellent businessman. could it be tough? >> absolutely. there was a ton of opposition research during the primary on this, the republican primary opponents never really used it. i've seen a lot of it. it's powerful. she'll use it to great effect. he has nobody to go on tv and push back. >> great to see you. >> dan, thank you so much. dangerous heat is helping to fuel wildfires burning overnight in the western united states. there are fears two growing wildfires could merge. >> at least 16 wildfires are burning in the west. hundreds of people have been force d to evacuate and triple digit temperatures are making matters worse. death valley could reach 120 degrees today. phoenix could hit 112. a difficult effort to fight the flames. carter, good morning. >> reporter: we're in the angeles national forest where firefighters have been battling the flames through the night but
7:12 am
digit temperatures during the daytime that are making this such a tough fire to fight. >> these are huge flames. >> reporter: flames from the fish fire and reservoir fire ate away at tinder dry vegetation monday. firefighters mounted a strong offense in punishing 100-degree heat in order to keep the fires from merging into one massive inferno. >> look at that just pouring out of that aircraft right there. and it just goes and goes. >> reporter: smoke choked the air and became an eerie backdrop to the downtown los angeles skyline. drivers could see the powering plumes from the freeway. more than 600 homes are under mandatory evacuation. some had little more than ten minutes' notice before they had to get out. >> it's devastating. it's unbelievable how fast it happens and that it was actually burning against the wind downhill. >> if this burns the next thing will be mud slides.
7:13 am
watched anxiously as the fire flirted with her property line. >> we live here for a reason. we love these mountains and these hills. when you live some place like this, you have to know there's always that danger. there's a tradeoff. >> reporter: as night fell, the flames crept closer. the air assault pressed on and the crew fought the fire from the ground. >> with this heat and with the fields being so dry, we could have another spark-up a couple miles away. >> reporter: it's still before sunrise and it's already pretty warm out here. we expect the triple digit temperatures it to continue at least through today and, of course, that means there's the possibility we could see even more wildfires. charlie? >> carter, thanks. attorney general loretta lynch will travel to florida today for a briefing on the investigation into the orlando nightclub shooting. the fbi yesterday released a time line and tran script of phone calls between the gunman, a hostage negotiator, and
7:14 am
david begnaud is in orlando. david, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning. our investigative team has confirmed the fbi has their hands on a piece of video that shows the killer practicing with an assault rifle prior to the attack. also this morning the fbi is telling us the killer called 911 speaking in a chilling, calm, and deliberate manner. at 2:02 a.m., the call goes out to police, multiple shots fired at pulse nightclub. the killer was insidearmed with a rifle and a handgun. about six minutes later -- >> our officers were within the club within minutes and engaged the suspect in gunfire. >> reporter: the killer retreated to one of the bathrooms and barp cabath barricaded himself inside with hostages. at 2:35 a.m. he called 911. i'm in orlando, he said, and i did the shootings. during the 50-second call he also pledged his allegiance to the leader of isi
7:15 am
up. what followed were three conversations with hostage negotiators between 2:48 a.m. and 3:24. the killer claimed to have explosives. there is some vehicle outside that has bombs. he also said he had a vest similar to the kind used in france. those claims turned out to be false, but by keeping the killer occupied and on the phone, police believe lives were saved. >> during that time our officers were intermittently in and out of that club saving people. >> reporter: earlier on monday the fbi was criticized by republican leaders for releasing a transcript with the shooter's pledge to isis redacted. speaker paul ryan said selectively editing this transcript is preposterous and the public should be clear-eyed about who did this. investigators back tracked releasing the transcript without redactions. by releasing it with redactions at first the justice department says they didn't want to create a platform for
7:16 am
norah, after being pummeled by reporters and asked why they weren't being transparent, the justice department within four hours said here is the script unredacted. you guys are creating an unnecessary distraction. >> quite a reversal. david, thank you so much. new gun control measures appear unlikely after the senate failed last night to pass four separate bills, each fell short of the 60 votes needed. democratic party bills called for expanded background checks and banning anyone on a terrorist watch list from buying a gun. the republican versions rerequired people to wait 72 hours. maine republican susan collins is expected to unveil a bipartisan bill today. hours before the senate votes last night, i interviewed vice president joe biden. a conversation at the executive office building next to the white house was wide ranging. we began with gun control. >> we have seen in orlando another terrible terrorist attack. in fact, the largest
7:17 am
killing in america's history. it brings to the fore once again gun control. are you any more optimistic that at long last some changes may take place? >> slightly, charlie, but i do think that at a minimum on matters relating to people on the terrorist watch list being able to purchase a weapon as well as possibly further ba background checks could pass this time. >> and could it pass a house of representatives? >> i don't know. all i know is you have to continue to try. it will eventually pass. >> some will argue that if someone is intent on doing great vi violence, they will find a gun. >> let's assume that's true, okay. whether they find a gun or they find the equivalent of an an r-15 depends on how much damage they can do. it's like you hear if they don't have a gun they'll get a baseball bat or a knife or
7:18 am
going to kill as many people. they're not going to get to as many people and if you have multiple rounds and magazines that hold 19 shots and you go boom, boom, boom, boom, as opposed to, you know, like everybody thinks of the western old six shooter you have to take it out and work it, it matters. it matters the amount of carnage that can occur as a consequence of what type of weapon. >> this is a political year and these are political issues. this is what you said in a speech you made several hours earlier. it would tw undermine or seek sound bite solutions in a world of complexity if we forget who we are, betray our values and embrace intolerance we will squander all of our hard-earned progress. most people who heard that thought you were talking about donald trump. >> well, donald trump falls into that
7:19 am
other people do as well. but it's a voice that is being heard around the world. if we squander the alliance, if we denigrate them, if we go out there and there's 1.5 billion muslims in the world, if we make the religion the enemy, where do you think we're going to get the cooperation? >> is that what donald trump is doing in your judgment? >> yes. >> we will have more of our conversation in our next hour. biden reacts to the extraordinary letter signed by 51 american diplomats critical of the administration's theory of policy and he opens up about his friendship with the president. that's ahead. one week after the disneyworld alligator attack killed the 2-year-old boy, rikki klieman will be here with the potential of a hug

out. 2014 and 2015 grand cherokees were among 1.1 million vehicles worldwide recalled in april for an issue with the electronic shifter that could result in rollaway incidents. the shifter lacks the traditional grooves telling the driver the car is in park, reverse or drive. federal regulators call the design not intuitive, increasing the potential for unintended gear selection. owners were notified of the recall in may by letter while fiat chrysler accelerated its plans for repairs, internal documents show the fix wasn't expected to be available until at least july. >> i pushed all the way forward. it doesn't necessarily mean i end up in park. >> reporter: we first reported on the issue in march. since then the number of complaints has grown to approximately 700 including 212 accidents and at least 41 injuries. company documents blame potential driver error. >> i got out of the jeep. i thought it was in park and it was in reverse still. >> reporter: gary nearly avoided injury when his an

discuss. rikki, good morning. >> good morning. >> this remains one of the worst stories most people have ever heard. >> i agree. >> i can't imagine how horrible it was are for the parents. what could disney's possible defense be here? >> disney will say, if they were to have a defense, if the case were to go forward in that manner, disney is going to say, look, it wasn't foreseeable. we've never had an alligator attack on a human being that killed anyone, period, that there hasn't been an alligator attack at all where there's even an injury in 45 years. therefore, it wasn't foreseeable. they'll also say there were no swimming signs that were posted and when people go they assume the risk. the third thing they'll say is everybody knows there are alligators in central florida. and to that last, i say for people like me who grew up in the midwest and live in the concrete city of new york, i don't expect a gato
7:38 am
>> and no swimming is different, rikki, than beware of alligators, is it not? >> i think no swimming is highly different than beware of alligators, so we have to look at what the plaintiff has to prove if it were to go to trial. the plaintiff has to simply say that they knew, disney knew, prove that they had knowledge. what did they know, when did they know it, and they had a duty to warn. they didn't warn. >> why would disney ever want this to go to court? you don't ever want to argue with a family of a toddler killed on your property by an alligator. >> i say if i'm advising disney that my best advice is not only write the check and write it big but write it before a complaint is ever filed. >> and with the huge plan about how it will never happen again. >> i think it should already have been written and it should have been written with a sense of we are so very, very sorry. >> these are all the changes we're making.
